    I am not sure what y'all are arguing over, it was making my head hurt. But, for myself, I would prefer the Solo Forum to exist as a sub-forum of the Advanced SCUBA Forum or possible there simply be no solo specific forum and that solo discussions be allowed wherever they come up without interference.

    Good idea. More divers would probably realize it exists than listed under technical. It is definitely more consistent with dive training agencies. The same can be said of the Sidemount Forum.

    I have no idea how big a task it would be to relocate a sub-forum.

    Not a bad idea... let's think about this.

    I'm also in favor of moving solo diving to the Advanced forum. Solo diving is an advanced activity, not a technical activity, and the topic would benefit from the wider exposure to the appropriate diving population

    I would move it to the advanced section.

    At this time there are no sub-forums under Advanced. As Akimbo said, perhaps move Sidemount too. (so Solo doesn't look lonely)

    I just looked at the list again. I also suggest moving Wreck Diving. Boats take divers out to wrecks all the time and I bet very few passengers are tech divers.

    On the other hand, solo diving does not have to be in a subforum, none of the other advanced diving topics are. Either way would be an improvement
